Taylor Momsen Covers Teen Vogue

Taylor Momsen Covers Teen Vogue

Taylor Momsen is fall fashion fierce on the September 2009 cover of Teen Vogue.

The 16-year-old Gossip Girl, who just celebrated her birthday on Sunday, opened up to the mag about Hannah Montana, her band Pretty Reckless and her new style. Check it:

On dating older guys: “I’m not dating anyone right now, but I’ve had lots of relationships. My parents know that I’m not going to date someone who’s sixteen. Boys are so much less mature than girls as it is; there’s just no way— I would eat a boy my age alive.”

On being in the music industry now: “I don’t want to lose the artistry—a lot of people in music right now are faces—manufactured. I don’t want to be that.”

On growing up in front of the camera: “I kind of grew up in front of the camera: I started modeling when I was two. I was never pushed into it, but I never really chose it either. That’s why music is so different for me—I’ve known since I was little that this is what I want to do.”

On almost being cast as Hannah Montana: “I think it’s a great opportunity for Miley [Cyrus], but yeah, I guess I am relieved [that I didn't get it]. If I had gotten the part, it would be a very different show. It wouldn’t have worked for me. I push back.”

On her new updated look: “I know people were a little, um, taken aback. But it wasn’t me that changed—it was just that I decided to start being myself. Now I do my own makeup, my own hair, and dress myself, and it feels better.”

  • assyhole

    She’s very punk-chic meets Vogue/High Fashion! I like it. She has has flare and not afraid to be herself :D.

  • jessica

    Push back in what way?

  • daniela

    she should have been casted for The Runaways

  • faithanneSL

    pleassee. i really dislike this girl. she just looks like a little kid playing dressup, going through some kinda rebellious phase. just cause she’s on gossip girl with a buncha 20 somethings, doesn’t mean she’s so much cooler and hip than other 16 year olds.

    annnd please, what’s with her ‘i’m an artist’ complex? i’ve heard her music, and the lyrics are childish, and shejust has a raspy voice.she is not an artist, and never will be anything like joan jett or debbie harry,they’re legends in their genre’s.

  • me

    What happened to her? She used to be cute. Now she wears too much makeup and her hair looks like it was attacked by hedge clippers.
    I don’t like it.

  • aw

    lol at all her answers, so pretentious. But she’s a kid, she has time to grow up.

  • ale

    just one question…..who SHE THINKS SHE IS????

  • Emily

    She is so amazing! And, just because she is 16 doesn’t mean anything. People age differently, we are all individuals and have different minds of our own. Some people mature quicker and then some don’t.

    I happen to be the same age, and know where I am going in life. Age is just a number of how many years you’ve been alive; if you understand yourself and how this world works inside and out like her and I, that quickly, then that’s amazing for you. But if you don’t; well, then you wont understand how we can have our path set ahead without five more years of thinking about it.. like you.

  • Courtney

    I actually really like her overall look, but it seems like she’s going to end up in rehab in a couple of years.

  • sarah

    trying too hard to be a badgirl! not working for me, sweetheart!

  • =)=)=)

    the first time i saw her i thought she was 20-23 !! and when i knew she was 15 befor she was 16 i was shoked !! ya i didnt know her back then !! but im glad miley took the part and she is too well that her and i agree on that 1!! but realy alot of makeup 4 a 16 year old !

  • sooo

    @daniela: i was thinking the same thing!

  • emele

    Where are her parents? my parents would not have let me dress like that at her age, and they wouldn’t have understood if i dated older guys. Her parents must be pretty relaxed to let her turn out like this. She definately is trying to act alot older than her actual age…kinda sad that kids these days want to grow up so fast.

  • leah

    PEOPLE relax! She doesn’t put this make up on, teen vogue make up artists do it! Have you seen the amount of make up demi lovato used to wear?! She’s 16, give her time to mature! She’s just going through a phase wear she needs to experiment.
